Unit code
                                       This unit specifies the competency required to erect and dismantle formwork to footings and slabs on ground
    BCGCA2003B                         for establishing levels and containment of finished concrete.
                                       The unit includes forming basic slabs, forming rebates to slabs on ground and steps to strip footings
                                                                                                                                                                           25
